The University of Leicester has won a ‘terrific treble’ in the National Teaching Fellowship scheme, as three of our academics have been awarded the prestigious fellowships which acknowledge quality of teaching and support for learning.

This is the first time, Leicester has the rare distinction of winning triple awards – and is the only university to do so this year.
This year’s winners are:

  • Professor Glenn Fulcher, Professor of Education and Language Assessment in our School of Education
  • Professor Sue Law, Director of the University’s Academic Practice Service

A Q & A interview with all three recipients is online.

The University has now won a total of 14 awards from the Higher Education Academy – including seven single awards and two years of double awards.

The successful National Teaching Fellows were chosen from over 180 nominations submitted by higher education institutions across England, Northern Ireland and Wales.

Successful nominees were nominated by their institutions and submissions had to show evidence of three criteria: individual excellence, raising the profile of excellence and developing excellence.

Each will receive an award of £10,000 which will be used to support their professional development in teaching and learning or aspects of pedagogy.

Update: the three Leicester winners of this year's National Teaching Fellowship scheme were presented their awards at a prestigious ceremony in Liverpool. Below are photographs from the ceremony where the academics received their awards from Professor Rama Thirunamachandran, Vice-Chancellor and Principal Canterbury Christ Church University.
